What does GRIT mean to you?


We posed that question to Souzi Weiland, the manager of learning and organization development for Southwestern Energy and one of our inaugural GRIT nominees. This is what she had to say. 


“I think GRIT is all about perseverance and having the stamina to reach your goals, to envision that dream and to keep going regardless of the bumps along the way,” Souzi told us. “So if you know anyone who has GRIT, who lives and works in a gritty way, I highly encourage you to nominate them.”


We couldn’t agree more. Follow her advice and nominate yourself or someone you know for a GRIT Award. Deadline for nominations is July 20!
